Free Kindle Books, April 5 -- 177 free book links. Playstation3 app. Updated info.

Links to TEMPORARILY-FREE KINDLE BOOKS selected April 5 are listed here, and there are pointers to April 3-4 free book message threads by Kindle forum members.
  April 5 books are linked. And here are pointers to the forum threads for April 4 and April 3

Today, Thursday, there were about 600 temporarily free books on some lists, but half of those books were said to have actually been released already on Wednesday.
  Forum regulars post titles and descriptions for the books that each pick as interesting for themselves, as that should help others who don't have the time to go check out hundreds each day.
  The message threads with "no chat" in them are ending tomorrow, and the ones "with chat" may take longer to read through.  Starting today, I'll link to the threads "with chat" and you can just skim them to get the books of interest if you want them sooner.

For today, though, April 5, I've also posted, on an ongoing blog page, a list of 177 links to free Kindle books chosen Thursday by 35 Kindle forum regulars.  There are descriptions or genre information for many of these and a few of the books are discussed.
Again, these are recommended free Kindle book links for Thursday, April 5.

Recently discounted books
There is also a popular message thread of links to good Kindle books that have recently had the price lowered.  I haven't mentioned these lately, and I'll link you to those starting at the page showing listings March 31, 2012 and after, as earlier ones will more likely be back at regular pricing.

  As with free books, these often last for only days (sometimes only hours, on promos, though some will remain at the lower price for a longer time).  You might want to skip ahead there to catch the latest ones first and work backwards, but this gives you a starting point in a humongous list.

Thursday's Kindle Daily Deal [Changed this from Wednesday's]
  As usual, a reminder that there's the ongoing Kindle Daily Deal -- Thursday,' Ball Four', "...published in 1970, Jim Bouton's classic tell-all is a funny and highly revealing insider's take on professional baseball life.  His honest insights literally changed the public's image of professional athletes..." by Jim Bouton, 99c Thursday (it was $8.79 on Wednesday), 108 customer reviews, 4.6 stars avg.
  Many of you use an ongoing bookmark (a shortcut: ) to see the daily title.  As always these change nightly. (The blog post was made early evening 4/4/12 but I've moved Thursday's info in now.)

Playstation 3 gets Amazon Instant Video (including Prime, for Prime members)
Benzinga's Allie Wickman reports Amazon's announcement the other day that Sony's PS3 system is the the first and only video game console system to offer Amazon Instant Video.  Customers can access Amazon Instant Video on their PlayStation 3 system for free by installing the Amazon Instant Video app directly from the TV/Video Services category on the XMB (XrossMediaBar), and the app can also be found in the PlayStation store and under a listing of the media and apps.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
